If this doesn’t brighten your day I don’t know what will! Megan and Scott had some of the most lovely whimsical and bright details at their Central Florida wedding. If you love color as much as we do here at ELD, then you’re going to LOVE this special day! Stripes, shades of pink and navy, and gorgeous florals are just a few of our favorite elements. Oh, and did we mention that Megan is a stationery designer? Of course the invitation suite and all the wedding day stationery is amazing. I’m so excited that Megan is joining us today to share some of her insight! Amalie Orrange Photography captured everything at Luxmore Grande Estate perfectly, and we cannot WAIT for you to see!
“Scott was by my side for the planning process but he really let me run with the design. Being a paper lover & in the stationery industry I wanted to set the tone of our wedding early on though the invitation design. My design came from a mash up of things I love flowers, rose gold, black+white. Cedar water colored the floral design which were used on our stationery suite & then on many elements throughout the wedding. They became the pop of color. I added black & white for modern feel, plus its my go to color scheme in fashion & design.”
“Rose gold adds a bit of class/sophistication, plus my mom’s & middle name is Rose & my rings are set in rose gold too. The green bridesmaid dresses, although random, remind me of St.Petersburg’s iconic green benches (where I grew up) and Scott’s family’s John Deer tractors on the farm. The wood details in the design remind us of his father who is a wood worker by trade. We wanted the wedding to make everyone feel welcome & comfortable and full of personal connections … just like we do when we’re hosting guests at our house (as we love to do).”
“The meal we had is one of the meals Scott & I cooked together early on while dating. It has since become a favorite & a meal we cook for many occasions. Every guest received a menu card with the recipe to take home. Cake was a fun area of enjoyment throughout the wedding planning process for Scott & I – from cake tasting to beyond. We added cake into the response on our RSVP card & at each place setting there was a bite sized piece of cake that say “Life is short, eat cake first”.
I wanted to incorporate paper into the wedding somewhere – besides the obvious program, menu card, etc- so we hand cut paper chargers of Cedar’s watercolor floral design.”
